Men and HPV...

so what exactly can men do with this...

i mean i cant go to the doctor to make SURE that i have it, cuz they all tell me that they cant tell unless its physical evidence....

i can say that its been in my body for roughly 7 months, maybe 8...

without me or my partner knowing....

what the hell do i do now....sit around and wait till something comes up...

Re: Men and HPV...

Your anxiety is completely unwarranted. HPV is really nothing. Some strands cause visible warts (which are JUST like warts you'd get anywhere on your body), some cause changes that can lead to cervical cancer (preventable with regular pap smears and medical attention), or some do literally nothing. I swear, if you caught HPV from a doorknob, or someone sneezing on you, it would be treated like the complete non-event it really is.

I think it would help you to see a therapist to help you work through your feelings about this.
